The standard therapeutic protocols of pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) have not been well established yet. We investigated the clinical characteristics, disease progression, choices of treatments and outcomes of PLA with different size. 410 cases of patients with PLA were enrolled retrospectively from 2000 to 2014, and were grouped as small abscess (≤5 cm, n = 125), large abscess (5 cm to 10 cm, n = 218) and giant abscess (>10 cm, n = 36). The most common bacteria were Klebsiella pneumonia (22%) and Escherichia coli (11%) by pus culture, and Escherichia coli (36...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of a modified percutaneous nephrostomy procedure for grade III-IV hydronephrosis in neonates. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Eleven neonates (five girls, six boys) with a mean age of 13.7days±9.9 (SD) (range, 4-28days) with pronounced hydronephrosis had percutaneous nephrostomy using a modified procedure. In all patients, percutaneous nephrostomy was performed with a trocar catheter under ultrasound guidance and then the catheter was placed into the collecting system without prior dilatation...

Introduction. Acute appendicitis is the most common surgical emergency in the pediatric population. The peak incidence occurs in the first decade of life, while it is uncommon to face appendicitis in children younger than 5 years of age. Laparoscopy is now demonstrated to be the optimal approach also to treat complicated appendicitis, but in very young children this standardized operation is not always easy to perform. Material and Methods. From January 2009 to December 2015 we operated on 525 acute appendicitis, with 120 patients less than 5 years of age...

Biliovenous fistula occurs due to development of a communication between hepatic duct and portal vein branches and is a rare complication of percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD). Most of them are self-limiting and only occasionally they need interventional management. Placement of biliary stent graft is a viable option. We present here a case of a 56-year-old male with carcinoma of gall bladder presenting with hemodynamic shock due to severe hemobilia after PTBD and treated successfully by biliary covered stent placement...

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: Some deep pelvic abscesses are not accessible through anterior or lateral approaches because of the presence of organs and structures. The objective of this study was to assess the feasibility, safety, tolerability, and efficacy of a percutaneous presacral space approach by reviewing our clinical experience and the literature. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The outcomes of 12 patients, who have undergone computed tomography (CT)-guided percutaneous presacral space drainage, were retrospectively reviewed, including demographic, clinical, and morphological data in the medical records...

PURPOSE: This study was designed to investigate thoracic duct collateral leakage and the supply route of lymphatic fluid by lymphangiography and transcatheter thoracic ductography and to evaluate the results of embolization for thoracic duct collateral leakage performed to cut off this supply route. METHODS: Data were retrospectively collected from five patients who underwent embolization for thoracic duct collateral leakage in persistent high-output chylothorax after thoracic surgery...

OBJECTIVE: We compared postoperative outcomes and quality of life (QoL) between patients who received a nephrostomy versus a ureteral stent following PCNL in a prospective double-blind randomized fashion. METHOD: Between September 2015 and March 2016, we randomized 30 patients undergoing PCNL to receive nephrostomy drainage (Group 1) or Double-J ureteral stent (Group 2) at conclusion of surgery. Nephrostomy tubes were removed within 48 hours and ureteral stents were removed at least 2 weeks after surgery...

BACKGROUND: The frequency of isolated biliary candidiasis is increasing in cancer patients. The clinical significance of isolated biliary candidiasis remains unclear. We analyzed the risk factors of biliary candidiasis and outcomes of the patients with unresectable cholangiocarcinoma after percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD). METHODS: Among 430 patients who underwent PTBD between January 2012 and March 2015, 121 patients had unresectable cholangiocarcinoma...

AIM: To introduce natural orifice transgastric endoscopic surgery (NOTES) tube ileostomy using pelvis-directed submucosal tunneling endoscopic gastrostomy and endoscopic tube ileostomy. METHODS: Six live pigs (three each in the non-survival and survival groups) were used. A double-channeled therapeutic endoscope was introduced perorally into the stomach. A gastrostomy was made using a 2-cm transversal mucosal incision following the creation of a 5-cm longitudinal pelvis-directed submucosal tunnel...

INTRODUCTION: Management of breast abscess in lactating women remains controversial. During pregnancy, women may develop different kinds of benign breast lesions that could require a surgical incision performed under general anesthesia with consequent breastfeeding interruption. The purpose of this study was to prospectively evaluate the management of large breast abscesses with ultrasound-assisted drainage aiming at breastfeeding preservation. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 34 lactating women with a diagnosis of unilateral breast abscess have been treated with an ultrasound (US)-assisted drainage of the abscess...

AIM: to analyze the efficacy of interventional methods in treatment of Klatskin tumor patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Treatment of 133 patients with Klatskin tumor for the period 2000-2015 was analyzed. Bismuth I type was revealed in 28 (21.1%) cases, type II  - in 45 (33.8%) cases, type III - in 51 (38.3%) cases, type IV - in 9 (6.8%) cases. All patients underwent sonofluoroscopy-assisted percutaneous transhepatic cholangiostomy using self-fixing Pig tail 8Fr drains at the first stage followed by externointernal drainage or antegrade biliary stenting...

Evaluation of the severity of acute cholecystitis is critical for the management of this condition. Superb microvascular imaging (SMI) enables the assessment of slow blood flow of small vessels without any contrast medium. An 84-year-old man visited our hospital with right upper abdominal pain. Computed tomography and abdominal ultrasonography showed a slight thickening of the gallbladder. White blood cell count and C-reactive protein levels were elevated. He was diagnosed with acute cholecystitis and treated conservatively with antibiotics...

Purulent pericarditis seldom occurs in Western countries, yet its mortality rate remains high between 20 and 35 % despite early treatment. We report the case of a 43-year-old patient admitted in the intensive cardiologic care unit with a pre-tamponade, requiring an immediate percutaneous pericardiocentesis allowing the drainage of a purulent effusion. Evolution with antibiotic therapy adapted according to the bacteriological findings was favorable and 3-months follow-up shows a near complete regression of the effusion...
